why I love blackheath

So yesterday in the etsy forum I was telling GUGAW why I love living in Blackheath. So when I was in my garden this morning and heard the lovely noise I have heard many times before I ran inside to get my camara. Lots of people dont know but there are thousands of wild parrots living in the south of London and down into bits of Kent. They are wicked awesome and I love seeing them. I normally only see them in Greenwich park or in a garden on my way to the post office easting from bird feeders. So this is why I love living in Blackheath, not only do you have the benifits of living really close to London city centre but you have fantastic wildlife. There are of course more reasons why blackheath is lovely like the fact that it is really a village so it has a great community spirit that you dont get in many places nowadays. Plus most of the shops are independant, not all to my taste but I support that they are not all chain stores. The only downsides are that is bloody expensive to live here and also that there are so many estate agents and chain coffee shops but this seems to be following the trend of most places. I wouldnt choose to live anywhere else in London though.

Thats really neat :) Parakeets??

No parrots here (I think at least). Lots of Blue Tits that sit right beside you. When the guys go outside the birds go mental, chirping away and dive bombing them sometimes. Its funny to see actually. Not sure why they don't attack me or my MIL.
